The cool thing about Starbucks
Posted by Andy Steves in on February 21, 2011.
One good thing about Starbucks is the price. While generally too expensive, you’ll notice that the prices are the same across a country. An espresso will cost more or less the same whether you find yourself in Time Square, NYC or Lynnwood, WA. The same goes for Europe. No matter how expensive the neighborhood you find yourself in is, you can depend on generally the same prices under the green orb.
On top of that, you can usually depend on some solid, free internet. Somebody needs to make a movie about the entrepreneurs who run their business out of Starbucks. Just like George Cluny could say what terminals he lives in in “Up in the Air”, I could—along with thousands of other small-timers—say which internet cafes like Starbucks we spend hours pounding away at our businesses. Just like “Castaway” with Tom Hanks was a solid extended commercial for FedEx, the same could be true for this young entrepreneur’s story in Starbucks.
I had a blast visiting Prague for the first time with WSA. To start, the hostel that WSA booked for the tour was incredible. The entire staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice, and there was a really cool bar downstairs with live music every night. Our tour guide was top notch as well. He was really fun and flexible with whatever our group wanted to do while making sure we saw all of the major sights, good places to eat, as well as the night life! I thought this trip was much easier to book through WSA rather than figure it all out myself and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!Alex Dornacker, Central College ~ Center of Modern Languages, Granada,, Fall 2015
